Hot off the presses: HEART SPOKEN How to Write Notes that Connect, Comfort, Encourage, and Inspire

Hot off the presses! HEART SPOKEN is the newly released book by Elizabeth Cottrell, with the publishing date of July 15, 2022!

One of the joys of writing this blog on letter writing are connecting with other kindred letter writing enthusiasts. This past month receiving the beautiful email from Elizabeth introducing herself, her book, and website is a joy to share here.  

In her email to me she was sharing she is a long time fan of Anchored Scraps! Furthermore, it is a joy to share she has included the AnchoredScraps blog in the book’s Appendix of Resources. 

“Heartspoken: How to Write Notes that Connect, Comfort, Encourage, and Inspire will guide you to uncovering your own unique note-writing voice and give you the confidence to use it…”
